V. 1: Newsman Mike Wallace (Lt. US Navy) recalls how Hitler's brutal conquest of Europe ultimately forged the American will to fight. Senator Daniel Inouye (Capt. US Army) remembers his astonishment at the Japanese squadrons flying over his family's Hawaiian home on their way to Pearl Harbor. Senator Bob Dole (Lt. US Army) tells of a Kansas boy from his hometown who never returned from the Bataan Death March. These and other stories trace the first 1,00 days of WWII including Hitler's rise to power; the attack on Pearl Harbor; the internment of Japanese-Americans; the fall of Guam, Wake Island and the Philippines; Major Doolittle's daring raid on Tokyo; and America's victories at the Battle of Midway and Guadalcanal. v.2: Actor Eli Wallach (Capt. US Army) and Governor John Connally (Lt. Cmdr. US Navy) share their memories of North Africa, while Senator Daniel Inouye (Capt. US Army) tells of bitter fighting in the Italian countryside. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (Cmdr. US Navy) remembers a commando mission in Italy, and Mike Wallace (Lt. US Navy) recalls the haunting radio silence left in the wake of a missing US submarine. These and other stories look back at 1943 when the Allies took North Africa and Sicily and the US captured the Solomon Islands. Bougainville and Tarawa. While a mighty citizen's army went off to do battle, American women took to the front-lines of the industrial war-effort, and everyone on the homefront chipped in: rationing gasoline, growing victory gardens, and buying war bonds
